Fan club. Members.

Any long term fan club member like me. Thirty plus years let member lapse and than when you renewed you got out into second presage group like a new member. So thirty years of paying membership means nothing. And one else out in the cold.

sorry, but nothing much can be done about that - From the FAQ:
 

We do not change your subscription category. No exceptions will be made.

Well the whole point in renewing honsetly is to maintain that position--if you let it lapse than you are n olnger a member....

Same boat myself. Paying member since U2.com started and Propaganda before that. Forgot to renew until 12/27/16 and was booted down to a new subscriber pre sale.

Emailed and talked to a nice lady who said she would turn it over to a higher up, but doubted anything would happen. Got an email from u2.com basically saying nothing would be done.

 

Certainly it sucks but at the same time it's a bit of a relief because now I don't feel like I have to renew every year to maintain some kind of spot. And after spending lots of $$$ on U2 stuff over the past 30 years it might be nice to save a $50/ year fan club membership every now and then.

 

So good luck to all those who are in the Wire pre-sale group!

I sign up for this when a tour comes around.  In Wires this time.  The first frenzy had me with no buying options, but I kept trying.  Then by 11:30am venue time there were tonnes of options.  No problem at all.  Throughout the day, lots of tickets, particularly GAs, were available.

 

Most lower bowl stuff in Vancouver was sold out, but that wasn't where I was looking.  I was looking at upper bowl $100 tickets.  Super expensive for up there, but better than $285 in the lower bowl.  RedZone was sold out before Wires I believe, not that I was in the market for that anyway.

 

Happy with the experience.  Makes me wonder why people wait in line for three days for public onsale tickets when they could just get in on the presale for $50 USD.  Which is kind of steep for sure, but if you can afford it, why not?

I am also a fan club member (since 1984) that had to let the membership lapse when things got financially tough for us.  I renewed my membership for the presale and got good seats for Tampa, but not in the Red Zone that I was hoping for.  During the public sale I decided to give it another shot - to my amazement, I ended up with 4 Red Zone tickets!  I'm a little annoyed that, as a fan club member, I was not able to get these tickets during the presale.  Now I need to figure out a way to get rid of my 4 presale tickets while having to deal with this credit card entry system.

Because having a pre-sale code doesn't guarantee anything? I got my GA tickets for 50.00 less than you in the public sale. Who needs pre-sale codes for a chance at GA anymore? No one. I don't gamble when I don't have to.

Yep. Became a member in 1986.  No tickets on presale (constantly got kicked out) and no tickets for the general public sale.  So angry right now. As of 10:07 AM (sale began at 10:00) there were only resale tickets or tickets practically in another town available. LIVID.
